When the CG animated film adaptation of Space Pirate Captain Harlock was screened in 300 Japanese theaters last September 7, it only made a 133,969,750 yen, which is roughly US$ 1.33M – a disappointing cume considering that they have reportedly pumped over US $30M into the production of the film. It’s understandable if people think that studios are not going to try something like it so soon after the massive failure, but if there’s one thing they can do to salvage the movie, maybe it’s “bring it to the West.”

We’re only a couple of weeks away from the September 9 Japanese premiere of the CG animated film adaptation of Space Pirate Captain Harlock, and Universal Music Japan has seen it fit to tease everyone with a new music video for the movie’s theme song, Tokiko Kato’s “L’Amour dans ton Coeur.”

While modern fans may expect a more contemporary theme song (similar to the ones used by FF VII Advent Children, featuring a mix of industrial rock and opera), Tokiko Kato’s slow operatic approach still fits in well with the film, especially if you consider the story from the original.
